About this Cook
I am married, our son is 1yr old. I like to cook, laze around, play with our son, eat, eat and eat some more....and its starting to catch up to me....grrrr, but, as long as food tastes so yummy, I'll keep eating and eating and eating! Moderation...ya I know....but....FOOD!!! MORE MORE MORE!!!
My favorite things to cook
EVERYTHING!! I used to bake lots too, but I discovered I may be allergic to gluten, so I am laying off the baked goods, and all other things containing gluten for awhile until we know for sure. Things I am really good at....boiling water until the pot is empty and scorching, burning microwave rice, burning potatoes, and lots of other charred items. Therefore, my favorite things to cook are things that don't burn as easily.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I like the big feasts at Christmas.
My cooking triumphs
Finally learning how to make chicken that tastes good. Not sure what I was doing wrong, but it was gross everytime, and not just to my tastes. Everybody found it absolutely nasty. And now, suddenly, even though I cook it the same, it tastes very good.
My cooking tragedies
Everything that I burn. I need less distractions.

Curried Cauliflower Soup
Deeelish!! But don't think you can skip the cauliflower and just add more onions LOL. Waaay too oniony and I like onions. So, I bought cauliflower the next day, doubled the rest of the ingredients to make up for the extra onions and it worked out wonderfully. Only change I made was beef stock instead of veggie, and omitted the garlic because I don't do garlic.

Classic Peanut Butter Cookies
YUM!!! Made twice. Once with no changes other than used salted butter and omitted the salt. And the second time I swapped a cup of flour for a cup of oatmeal. Both times, amazing! The oatmeal made them a bit crispier/crunchier which I preferred, but both ways were totally tasty. (note that I did use natural peanut butter, the kind that is made of peanuts only, not the processed sugar added hydrogenated kind)
